Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says that he learned a lot from watching videos of former Barcelona star Ronaldinho and ex-Manchester City forward Robinho.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has revealed that he used to watch Brazilian stars Robinho and Ronaldinho on YouTube.

Speaking to the FourFourTwo magazine, the Belgium international said that he learned a lot from the two Brazilians, who are two of the most skilful players of all time.

‘When I was a kid I used to get home from school and go straight into my garden to practise my skills’, said the 23-year-old.

‘I also learned a lot from watching Ronaldinho and Robinho on YouTube. Football is a tactical game and you have to professional on the pitch, but keep smiling and enjoy it.

‘I play for the fans. I love to entertain them. I like to run at defenders and cut inside or beat them on the outside. It’s important to keep the defenders guessing’.

Ronaldinho is a footballing legend and is one of the most talented players of all time, while Robinho has played for some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Real Madrid and Manchester City.

Hazard himself is supremely skilful, and over the last couple of years or so he has been an influential player for Chelsea.

The former Lille star is still only 23 years of age, which means that he is likely to improve and develop a lot over the coming years.
